    Aw man that would've been a great way to celebrate BW's 15th anniversary. :( 

    This is making me wish we can get Primal Prime from POTP Optimal Optimus in Selects even more.

    I would really love a new Tigertron, I never had him as a kid and I love his color scheme. Hopefully after the War for Cybertron trilogy the 80s nostalgia starts to run dry and they can start to tap into that sweet, sweet 90s nostalgia.

    Looking at the artwork, I think it was actually for a G1 15th Anniversary, circa 1999, that featured both lines:

    It's really cool. The funny thing is at the time G1 would have been the throw back. In 1999 the franchise was at peak Beast Wars, the past 3 years had seen Beast Wars reinvigorate the franchise, season 3 had just finished, Transmetals were still on the shelves, Beast Machines was just around the corner. The set would have reintroduced G1 to fans used to Beast Wars rather than the other way around. It's funny how things turn out.

    A not so rare at the time example of G1 fans getting gyped.

    I've had this figure for years, never knew the official name... and having heard it, sticking with my name for him: "Howlitzer"

    Omg, why Hasbro? You know the fan vote Primal should have been this instead of season 1 colors... so why did you not? The toy was an evolution of Primal becoming a Prime.:throw
